Rex Saves Christmas

Gone With Santa

“I believe you will save Christmas,” said Santa. “Now, we really must
hurry, but first you need to leave a note for your folks, just in case they
wake up and find you gone. They would be frantic with worry if that

“You’re right,” agreed Timmy. Timmy sat down and wrote:

“Dear Mom and Dad, Rex and I have gone with Santa to help him
deliver gifts. We’ll be back before morning. Love, Timmy. Oh – Santa ate
all the cookies!”

“Good,” said Santa. “Now get your coats and let’s hit the sky!”

Timmy grabbed coats and hats for himself and Rex. Then up the
chimney they clambered, Santa leading the way. Once they were on the
roof Rex, Timmy, and Santa all hurried to put the scattered toys back in the
sleigh. They jumped in and Santa took the reins.

Song: “Santa’s Bag is Broken”

Santa’s bag is broken, the toys have fallen out
Santa’s going to need some help tonight without a doubt
He has so many presents for little boys and girls
He only has tonight to travel all around the world

Santa’s bag is broken, dawn is drawing near
If we don’t leave this minute, the stars will disappear
Rudolph and the reindeer are chomping at the bit
And Santa is beside himself and having quite a fit

Cuz Christmas is his time to shine
And shine is what he’ll do
Cuz he’s got Rex . . . and Timmy
To help him make it through

Santa’s bag is broken, time to jump into the sleigh
Whoever thought an octopus would help save Christmas day
I’ll tie the gifts so carefully on each and every arm
When going down the chimney no toys will come to harm

Santa’s bag is broken, but you need have no fear
Little Rex the octopus . . . is here
